  2. Pray tell. Are your stories about liaisons at Lanphiers Cove, or pranks in Pawson Park ?

    1. Indian Neck and Lanphier Cove are nearby. As a young boy and teen, we romped from Mansfield Grove in Mamauguin to the beaches in Madison. Lots of memories.

    2. We ranged from Short Beach to Stony Creek and the Thimbles. Double Beach! Pine Orchard among our stomping grounds. Yes sir. Lots of memories. WYBC usually playing in the background, on land or on the water.

    3. In the late '60s, I can remember YBC was the area's 'underground' station. They would play the longer, 'counterculture' music (much which, of course, comprises today's 'standard' music).

      Do you remember WBBY?

    4. WBBY? Nope. Until 99.1 WPLR took over the so cent Conn rock airwaves “diversity in music,” and we’re not talking a few songs sung in Portuguese, was found on Lucky 13 WAVZ. One
      might hear Hendrix into The Temptations, then the Beatles followed by Simon & Garfunkel.

    5. WBBY was Gary Trudeau's Doonesbury radio station.

      Love the Beatles.

    6. Beatles Rubber Soul often in the car CD player. They were amazing. Lately have been listening to a capella. The Persuasions do cds of Dylan and Grateful Dead tunes. Great stuff. Very soulful. They have a similar cd of Beatles tunes I need to track down. Cheers!

  3. Seeing that long long station wagon reminded me of live TV days when William Lundigan was the host of "Climax" and as he was demonstrating how the spare tire of a big wagon was stored in the rear fender just behind the tire and all you had to do was just open a little door and the easily accessible spare would appear but he couldn't get the door open. The look on his face...well, it must have been 60 years ago but I still remember it.
